Hey guys, I'm now back to playing and talking about warhammer again after taking month and a half long break from the hobby during the time that I was in oregon visiting grandparents and when I was at boy scout camp. So, now that it's summer I will have a lot of time on my hands to enjoy the hobby.
Anyway, enough about why I wasn't here. Today I'm going to talk to you about my favorite aspect of warhammer, terrain. What got me thinking about terrain was my friend who was telling me about this awesome crashed train he made for our warhammer battles. From what I hear it sounds pretty cool. So I'm going to ask you guys what kind of terrain you use for your battles.
I usually use a lot of my playmobile sets from when I was a kid. The plastic trees go really well with my battlefield. However I also like to make terrain. Most of the terrain I've made doesn't get used much because we don't have a desert themed table yet. Still, they are pretty cool and I can't wait to use them in skirmish scenarios.
The first terrain piece is a pyramid. I made it for my 6th grade egypt project and as I built it with my dad I made sure to make it to scale with my miniatures. It doesn't have an interior but there is an entrance where you can have miniatures march out of. Even without an interior it is still an impressive piece of terrain. I brought it into my local game store one day and people were pretty impressed. The manager even told me that he wished he could have it since they didn't have much in the way of TK terrain.
The next piece of terrain was built by my younger sister and my dad when she had to do her Egypt project. Together they built a temple with removeable cielings on the interior sections of the model. It's built on a centimeter thick board so it can't be placed on a table without looking odd. However It makes a for great skirmishes so I'm pleased with it.
So what kind of TK terrain do you have? If you have photos, please show me, I would show you some of my terrain pieces but I'm too lazy to provide you with the picture of the temple but if you want to see the pyramid here it is.
Oh man, that is one super sweet terrain piece! I particularly like the fact that it's a stepped pyramid.
Just thinking about Khalida with a million or so archers planted on that bad boy just makes me drool... I've never seen anyone concede during deployment -LOL.
Go go gadget rep!
Because Sun Tzu would play Tomb Kings...
I'm actually up for some Terrain Making too I would love to see that Temple, for the chance is that it may give me inspiration to start right now at the moment
Welcome back! I was wondering if you had disapeared to Egypt to do some more TK research.
You should use the pyramid even if you dont have a "desert" table. With a green mat, you can just say its a TK temple located in the jungles of Lustria. It would also make for some very interesting tactical manuvering with a piece of terrain that big on the table. (okay, you may only play a game or two with it. heh)
Normal terrain that I work with is a couple foam hills, some trees (either attached to a plasticard base or standing on a piece of green felt), a foam pyramiid I made, and some random buildings and such.
I've been looking a little bit into making molds and using plaster, but I have to find time for that amonst alll of my other things I need to do.
I ought to try that! I just need some more lustria-esque terrain pieces. Having a pyramid in the center of our table would definitley change the way we usually play our games! I think I should maybe go to a pet store to get some good lustria scenery. Some of those decorations for fishbowls and cages really would make great warhammer terrain.
When I was new to WHFB I know I played a battle where a huge pyramid stood in the middle of the Battlefield It was really cool, and did work as a terrain piece
That was when I realized why not to put the Hierophant in the Casket, hahahaha I was totally owned Happy times... Happy times...
